Eau Claire, WI (WQOW) - Two rounds of showers and thunderstorms are possible today in the Chippewa Valley. The first will pass through before noon, while a second batch of scattered showers and storms could develop in the evening.
"Severe thunderstorms cannot be ruled out, but they will likely be few and far between," said News 18 Meteorologist Nick Grunseth. "Our severe weather potential depends on how much heating we see throughout the day. In general, less sun means less energy for the atmosphere to work with, limiting the potential of severe weather."
Grunseth also notes periods of heavy rainfall and frequent lightning are a possibility, but flash flooding is not a top concern.
